Crow's Nest Tree House with Trap Door and Ladder

My sons are 3 and 6 years old and developed a serious obsession with tree houses. I built this one for them using basic RYOBI power tools. There's no game room or movie theater, but it gives them a squirrel's eye view of the neighborhood. Last Sunday we ate lunch up there and watched the clouds floating by. It was my most ambitious building project thus far, and I learned a lot in the process, like, keep two hands on the driver when trying to drive a lag bolt into a tree at maximum torque. I also learned how to fell a tree as I had to take out an 18 foot cedar that was next to the big tree.
